Tatoosh, the giant Pacific octopus at the New England Aquarium, has died.
Giant Pacific octopuses only live three to five years on average, according to the aquarium. They die quickly after entering the “senescence” phase of their lives.
The giant Pacific octopus is the largest octopus species in the world, according to the aquarium. They are highly intelligent, can change color and can move more than 700 pounds with their eight arms.
